Get a firsthand look as this new report is publicly released – Detroit Public Television’s Great Lakes Now initiative will stream the press conference at 2 p.m. ET on Thursday, Dec. 10. A French session will follow at 3:30 p.m.

Commissioner Rob Sisson has appeared in two Great Lakes Now watch parties: “Watching the Waters” and “Water Damage” which were both originally streamed live on Facebook so audiences could ask questions, and Commissioner Sisson and other speakers could respond.
